About Us

Paul originally opened a small office in the high street under the Waterside banner in 2011 as an affiliate to Waterside Properties Ltd, which has proved time and time again to be a super niche product to offer to customers that want to sell their homes that are located right by the water. 

Georgie joined Paul in 2016 and together they worked hard to create an honest agency with a hard working ethic and a strong sense of customer service within the local immediate community and now for some time encompassing all of the Isle of Wight.  During the last 6 years they have moved to a larger more visible office in the quaint Old Town of Cowes.  The decision to rebrand and call themselves ‘McCarthy & Booker’ is a huge step for the team, but an exciting one and meaning that owners of homes in rural spots around the island can now enjoy the super service and creative marketing strategies that the team are proud to offer.

Georgie McCarthy


I’m Georgie and I have lived on the Island for 20 years when I moved over from Buckinghamshire with my family.  I love the Islands diverse beauty and history, and on down time will be walking in different spots around the Island with my 2 Jack Russell Terriers Ralph and Mickey. I cannot imagine living anywhere else and certainly have made the most of my time here!

Paul Booker


I grew up on this gorgeous Island from a young age and have many fond memories of endless summers spent on beaches, swimming in the sea and exploring anywhere my bicycle would take me! After leaving school I spent time travelling in Australia and New Zealand, and worked in Oxford and London before returning to Cowes to get back into the world of estate agency, starting up my own agency in 2011. I recently moved to Freshwater Bay and love being part of a thriving community. Living on the Island you can’t help but be drawn to activities that let you explore the beautiful countryside and coastline, and whether it’s running across Tennyson Down or taking the paddle board out from Compton beach, there’s always plenty to do here.

I’m Tracey and am the newest member of the McCarthy & Booker team.  I moved to the Island in 2022 for a more peaceful and calmer way of life compared to where I lived in Sussex.  I can totally empathise with the stresses and turmoils of moving home!! I have a back ground in front facing customer service and am determined to give 110% to ensure all the administration runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
